Spinal Decompression

A healthy spine plays a pivotal role in how we move and function. The intricate structure comprises several bones called vertebrae, each separated by a cushioning disc that absorbs shock and keeps the bones from rubbing together. 

The spine starts at the tailbone and runs up the length of the back to the base of the skull. When functioning well, it allows us to move freely, offers support, flexibility, and stability, and protects the spinal cord, a column of nerves that continually communicates with the brain and controls movements. 

When the spinal discs are compromised and unable to perform correctly, neck and back pain are typically the result. Spinal decompression is a great way to safely, naturally, and effectively re-establish spinal integrity and correct movement patterns.

If spinal injuries affect your quality of life, let’s put an end to it starting today using spinal decompression for the relief you need.

What to Know About Spinal Decompression

Spinal decompression therapy is a non-surgical, medication-free treatment that helps relieve symptoms such as:


The therapy stretches the spine using a traction table to create negative pressure, relieving stress on the spinal discs and nerves. 

Spinal decompression treats numerous conditions, including:

  • Bulging or herniated discs
  • Degenerative discs
  • Pinched nerves
  • Sciatica
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Whiplash
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Posterior Facet syndrome
  • Arthritis 


We use spinal decompression on patients in need of noninvasive care after many kinds of accidents or events, including:

  • Nerve injuries 
  • Car accidents
  • Personal injury accidents
  • Sports accident
  • And others


The imbalances and injuries caused by these events can cause discomfort that ranges in severity. They impact how you move, work, and exercise and hinder your daily routine. Getting the organic chiropractic treatment your body deserves can help get you healthy and healed with little to no downtime as your body becomes stronger.

How Does Spinal Decompression Work?

Spinal decompression tables have two segmented parts that move separately from each other. They’re set up with an individualized decompression program using computerized technology based on the patient’s unique needs. 

The patient is asked to lie down on our spinal decompression table, where we’ll fit a harness around the pelvis and trunk of the body. The table mechanics will perform a variety of movements that will engage with the spine and promote a stretching effect.

The spinal stretch creates negative pressure and space within the discs, allowing disc fluid to be repositioned. This offers rapid function and comfort as healing nutrients make their way to the injury. 

Spinal decompression is safe and painless, designed to target and remove pressure on dysfunctioning discs naturally. The intended results usually occur after sessions lasting about eight weeks; however, everyone is different, so this varies per patient. 

Effectively Treating Back & Neck Pain with Spinal Decompression

Back and neck pain affects millions of Americans annually, sometimes leading to chronic pain and forcing patients to give up the activities they enjoy. Spinal decompression may be all they need to get back in action. 

While manual decompression is often ineffective because the muscles resist the desired stretch, decompression tables are equipped with sensors that detect when muscles react this way. 

The decompression table sensors help alleviate tension, allowing the muscles to relax and enabling successful decompression. This method makes the table significantly more effective in achieving the ultimate goal of lasting pain relief. 

Spinal decompression is an efficient, non-surgical, non-medicated option for naturally reducing back and neck pain. Our St. Peters chiropractic clinic utilizes this approach, often complementing other holistic care solutions.

Stop Living with Back & Neck Pain

When spinal discs degenerate, they become brittle and crack or tear easily, causing herniations or disc bulges. These imbalances put pressure on the spinal nerves and cause back and neck pain.

Because spinal discs are in constant use, they’re prone to degeneration and dysfunction from compression. Whether your spine is compromised due to sports or exercise, a physically demanding occupation, or regular wear and tear, you may achieve comfort through spinal decompression.

We know that consistent pressure on the spine makes damaged discs challenging to heal; however, decompression has been proven to remove that pressure for effective disc restoration. When the discs receive healing nutrients and fluids, they can function properly and support your movements. 

Take back control. Get the conservative, natural care your body deserves and start living actively today.
